Being a “Student-Athlete” entails a delicate balance between academic success and athletic performance. Liam’s ability to balance a demanding work and school schedule with ultimate performance is something that every T-Bird desires. Known for his shifty cutting, surgically precise throws, and seeing the field at another level, Liam “Doc” Stobart has been making plays for the T-Birds for the past 5 years, all while finishing up his undergrad in Biochemistry and his M.D.

How/when did you start playing ultimate?
In 2005, our high school grad class decided to start a frisbee team so all our friends could play a sport starting out together as beginners. I played mostly rec ultimate until 2010 when I joined the UBC team.
What is your favourite ultimate moment?
Beating Oregon for the NW regional title in 2011.
Favourite throw/ultimate play?
He didn’t answer this question, but I know for a fact it’s his squat flick huck. It’s hard to describe, and you’ll have to see it in person.

Liam is in his 4th year of Medicine, and has really enjoyed his time with the T-Birds. Despite the costs of tuition, Liam has greatly appreciated the connections he has made with his teammates, the outlet for physical activity, and enjoys representing the T-Bird name.
